In addition to asking fans to
identify their favorites, we asked
them to share how Seth Godin
changed their life.
What we got back were some
amazing stories like this one…
Shortly after starting our digital
creative agency (in 1998) I read a
fast company cover story about Seth
and permission marketing. At the
time FC posted everyone’s email, and
I saw an opportunity for his company
(Yoyodyne) to hire my small agency.
!
I used what I learned in that very
article to craft an email to Seth that
won me his business, and opened the
door for us to ultimately become
Yahoo!s first outsource agency after
they bought Yoyodyne, allowing our
company to grow and thrive.
James Spotso, Spotso Interactive
Seth has an ability to
INSPIRE people to have
faith in themselves and
their visions.

Much of Godin’s work is inspirational for real estate
professionals looking to rethink their business, but I
think that the Purple Cow proves to be the best example.

The Icarus
Deception: How
High Will You Fly
It’s a book about creativity and
business yet it reads as a
manual on authentic personal
and spiritual growth. Godin has
named what we can feel — that
the two are indisputably
conjoined.
Judy Herzl,

Tribes:
We Need You To
Lead Us
Its not about pleasing the
masses; its about reaching out
and defining exactly who you
want your customer to be.
Lori Osterberg,

Linchpin:
Are You
Indispensable?
It was like I had been living with
an unidentified disease and then
a professional diagnosed me and
suddenly I was no longer an
outcast.

On creating a hassle
Pamela Haynes,
High Point University
When I was deciding whether to take a
strategic planning position (as chair) at
my church, I read this post and moved
forward. I served as chair for 3 years
and we completed the plan in 2 years.

Quotes2
It’s a lot easier for an
organization to adopt new words
than it is to actually change
anything. Real change is
uncomfortable. If it’s not feeling
that way, you probably just
adopted new words.”

Kyle Sexton
I will do it, I will start my
business again, I will take the
risks, I will dare to dream.”
